Virginia Administrative Code

Agency 20. Virginia Waste Management Board
Chapter 120. Regulated Medical Waste Management Regulations

9VAC20-120-750. Closure care.

A. An owner, operator or permittee intending to close a regulated medical waste management facility shall notify the department of the intention to do so as least 180 calendar days prior to the anticipated date of closing.

B. Closure shall occur in accord with an approved closure plan, which shall be submitted with the permit application documents and approved when the director acknowledges that the facility is considered to have a permit. The holder of the permit shall submit a proposed modified closure plan to the department for review and approval as such modifications become necessary during the life of the facility.

C. The department shall inspect all regulated medical waste management facilities that have been closed to determine if the closing is complete and adequate. It shall notify the owner of a closed facility, in writing, if the closure is satisfactory, and shall order necessary construction or such other steps as may be necessary to bring unsatisfactory sites into compliance with this chapter. Notification by the department that the closure is satisfactory does not relieve the operator of responsibility for corrective action to prevent or abate problems caused by the facility.
